The "factory" made some damn good "hotrods".

You should study some history. I thought design guys still did that. It isn't 1950 anymore , but the retro thing is making alot of folks very happy.

Actually, what we call "hot rods" started out being factory designs, modified by the owner or his/her favorite custom shop, to suit the individual tastes of the owner. The bodies are many times unchanged from their original configuration, yet are no less "hot rod".

Drawings were and still are made to help folks visualize their car before it gets made in real live metal stuff.

That's why I asked if you drew hot rods.

There are a few guys here who do that for our members, as this is a place for folks to help each other.. My avatar pic was drawn by malc, with suggestions from me, based on my preferences, and it and the others he did for me will help me when it comes time to get r done.

I rather like the individual statements still being made by people who don't like following trends started by guys in offices. I have no problem being a minority in the general, non-hotrodder population though.


Later, mikey

I guess what we all are tying to say is

I will use music as a example well the distribution of thus said music.
sort o a short history lesson

Present time

~I pods
~Walk man C D players
~Walk man cassette player
~8 Track player
~Reel to Reel tape deck
~FM Radio
~Lp & 45 vinyl records
~AM Radio
Play the music yourself or go to where the musicians are.

In order for you to progress you must understand the past.

You can never know everything that happened before your time but you can pick up tid bits here & there from people who where there.
I was born in 1966 I wish I would have been born 10 years or so earlier because those are the cars I like the most .{starting in the 50's}


NOW that being said . . .If I had your talent i would go to our picture gallery & poke around for a while you might get some inspiration there don't just back off because someone pokes a little fun at you.

Poke back!

The difference between the office & the shop is dirt ,greasy dirt .


Its not easy being Fat & greasy

Hey , man.... I didn't mean to come off as being critical of your drawing. You got skills. mad skills , no boutadoubit. You could outdraw me , any day - hands down. I was just taking advantage of someone asking my opinion on their 'art' . You have to be prepared for people to not like your stuff. Even the good stuff. Alot of people think Rembrandt was a great artist. I think an inspired 1st grader could do as well , but that's my opinion.
I can do guitar solos that would break the fingers of some of todays more popular players , but not everyone likes my songs.
I am ready to take criticism , though , because I put my art out there to be judged.
With your skills , try re-doing a classic , but with your own 'modern' spin on it... kinda like a cover song. It's been done before , but you do it your own way.
I definitely did come off the wrong way at first , and I apologize.
This site is usually a great place to get advice , just watch what you ask people.... they just might tell ya !
whaddoo I look like - an idiot?
yep.
Later , man

Everything is cool guys. Im not mad by any means. I deal with teachers critiquing my work all day long. I just wanted to stop talking about what design should look like. Everyones taste of what cars should look like is thier own personal taste. So know one is right or wrong. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I guess thats the best way to say it.

My point was to show that you, as a young guy who comes up with concepts, and probably wants to make a living doing so, you will likely be asked to conceptualize things with themes, styling characteristics or that evoke memories of some other time or place.
You may be asked to draw things that you don't like at all, but the level of your performance will be based on how much the guy who commissions your services likes your product.

If you have no knowledge of the old designs and styles, you may find yourself repeating them.

Later, mikey
